Compare and contrast

The New York Times gives you Adam Nagourney on the problems for Republicans foreshadowed by Brian Bilbray’s victory in California’s 50th Congressional District race on Tuesday (“The victory that Republicans squeezed out in a high-profile race to fill a Congressional vacancy here eased party anxieties Wednesday but signaled future difficulties as they confront tougher Democratic challenges in increasingly contested districts this fall”). RealClearPolitics gives you Jay Cost on the national implications of the election results (“I think the crucial indicator is that CA 50 voted roughly ‘normally'”). The contrast in the quality of the analysis is striking. Advantage: RCP.
